Northerly flow aloft has been producing a few thundershowers at the surface, but dry, more stable air will arrive on Wednesday and last through the weekend.

This will result in comfortable lows with scorching daytime highs.

Tonight, expect isolated showers to end, then becoming calm and quiet after midnight with a low of 74.

Wednesday will be sunny with very light winds, again, also less humid with a high of 99, but a heat index of only 104.

Wednesday night will be tranquil, with clear skies and a low of 73.

Thursday, expect sunshine and low humidity, again, with a light afternoon sea breeze and a high of 98.

Stay cool.

The two systems in the tropics will likely develop into tropical storms Laura and Marco later this week.

Only the low-latitude Marco is expected to make it into the Gulf by the early part of next week.

Still nothing to worry about, but definitely worth watching.
